Leonardo DiCaprio checks out Puck Building penthouses + other celebrity rental details



It’s official: Jared Kushner’s long anticipated Puck Building penthouses are unofficially showing. One of the first potential buyers to take a peek inside the landmarked SoHo building’s top-floor apartments was none other than serial real estate viewer Leonardo DiCaprio.

Though the six penthouses have not been priced yet, “The Wolf of Wall Street” star looked at units that were in the “$20 million-plus” range, according to sources.

Kushner, Donald Trump’s son-in-law, had trouble getting the Landmarks Preservation Commission to approve his plans, which involved transforming the top floors of the historic 10-story building. After scaling the project back a tad, the penthouses, ranging from 4,895 to 7,000 square feet, are ready for viewing — there’s even a website — though it will still take some time before they officially get placed on the market, say sources.

Sweet & Lo Downtown
“Lindsay has some cash and she’s looking to upgrade.” So a spy tells us, referring to Lindsay Lohan, who is currently living in a surprisingly modest walkup on Thompson Street — though that appears to be temporary, as she is back to looking at $15,000-a-month rentals. One that caught her eye was a 1,734-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bathroom maisonette duplex in a landmarked townhouse at 32 W. Ninth St. that is asking $14,500 a month.

The mid-19th-century residence comes with a private entrance, an ornate spiral staircase, “dramatic coffered ceilings,” new hardwood floors and windows overlooking the tree-lined “Gold Coast.” The first floor includes a planted, shared garden (look out, neighbors!). The listing brokers are Douglas Elliman’s S. Hunie Kwon, John Gomes and Suzanne Cain.

Horne of plenty
She was one of America’s most beautiful and gifted entertainers. Now the apartment owned by the late, great Lena Horne — the Tony Award-winning actress, singer and civil rights activist — is on the market.

Horne’s former home at 23 E. 74th St. was separated into two individual residences after her death. Now one, a fifth-floor, 1,245-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op, which once served as Horne’s office, guest suite and home gym, is on the market for $1.29 million.

The listing broker is Jim Farah of the Corcoran Group.

Wein pairing
The Dakota is losing its best sacker, and its best Sachs’er. Last week, John Madden, the Superbowl-winning football coach, commentator and maker of the Madden NFL video games, and his wife Virginia, sold their two-bedroom apartment with a private entrance off the courtyard for $3.9 million. Now we can also tell you that socialite Sydney Houghton Weinberg — of the Goldman Sachs family dynasty — sold her servant’s one-bedroom in the building for $1.75 million to a current resident. The apartment was listed for $2 million. Her late father was Sidney J. Weinberg, a senior director of Goldman Sachs, and her grandfather Sidney J. Weinberg — who was known simply as “Mr. Wall Street” — was CEO of Goldman from 1939 until 1969. Sidney J’s brother John then led the company from 1976 until 1990.

We hear . . .
That the actual Upper East Side address where Simon Cowell’s baby-mama Lauren Silverman moved into is the swanky 1055 Park Ave. She was spotted last week pulling up to the luxury condo building in a chauffeur-driven black SUV and unloading packages destined for the fully furnished three-bedroom home. Douglas Elliman’s Tristan Harper declined to comment . . . That Ryan Serhant, star of Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing,” has illuminated, with purple lights, a $20 million-plus penthouse at 200 11th Ave. — where Domenico Dolce of Dolce & Gabbana and Nicole Kidman own units — in honor of Fashion Week, which ends tonight. “It looks like a lighthouse from the West Side highway,” Serhant says . . . That Corcoran broker Noble Black hosted a party for former Democratic mayoral candidate Christine Quinn on Sept. 1 at his new Sag Harbor home, which he bought last month for $1.75 million. The four-bedroom, three-bathroom house on Main Street measures 2,700 square feet and comes with high ceilings, six fireplaces and water views. The home was built in 1840. One of its past owners was the late composer/conductor Marvin Hamlisch.
